2020 – Poem from a Photo

Sew yourself a mask from this winter sunset

and wear it like an apricot smile.

Examine those silhouette branches –

a set of charcoal fingerprints

pointing at summer and those angrier,

suffering skies.   It’s that kind of year, you know

when, instead of beauty or fine weather,

a shard of  blue ‘twixt the clouds

reminds you of breaking your favourite mug.
